The pouring rain could not keep people away from Madison Central Public Library‘s pre-reopening party, Stacked. With online tickets selling out, there was a line out the door. The Central Library’s previous community celebration in the empty building, Bookless, set a high bar, and I was excited that Stacked was just as creative and fun! Live music, DJ’s, art installations, craft beers & craft-making, the return of the Oracle! – and a chance to explore this great new space.
I had a wonderful day of shopping and photographing the Handmade Madison spring craft marketplace!
Rachel Dolnick and Jackie Matelski of the Handmade Madison Indie Artist League organized a spectacular event with a diverse group of artists and wares. After realizing there was no way to have everything I wanted, I purchased a great pair of earrings with an almost iridescent coral stone. Many of the artists also have websites and Etsy stores where I will very likely pick up some of the other great items on my wish list!
